They got curly fries, some good brews on tap, bottle & can, but don't seem to know what a 'sour' is. Bartender told me that usually means they've gone bad. Yikes! Let's build up that knowledge base on what you're serving. Nice spot though on...More

Great location to sit and have a pint when walking the canal. We were going from Hertford to Limehouse and sat on the steps with a beer and some pork scratchings.

Hi David, So lovely to hear you had a wonderful time with us! Our sausage rolls are the best, if we do say so ourselves. Hope to see you again soon for a refuel. Hollie, Sales and marketing Coordinator

The Princess of Wales has been given some TLC and is now open once again — a proper good pub for the good people of Clapton.

The new-look Princess of Wales combines the best of a traditional London pub with everything you’d expect from a first-rate bar or restaurant. British classics like fish & chips, seasonal pies and juicy burgers will always feature on our menus but you’ll also spot innovative, home-grown recipes that feature the best of our regional produce. On our bar, cask ales take pride of place but we’ve also made room for some top-notch craft beers. Our wines, gins, vodkas and rums follow a similar pattern: firm favourites mixed in with exciting, new flavours.

Come by soon, get yourself a glass of something cold, sit by the River Lea and thank your lucky stars for unearthing the wonder that is the Princess of Wales.
